Francis Johnson Fellowships: Applications due March 1

The Library Company of Philadelphia welcomes applications for its
newly-launched Francis Johnson Fellowships. The Johnson Fellowships will
support two fellows—a humanities scholar and a creative practitioner—who
will delve into the compositions of one of the most popular black composers
prior to the American Civil War. These fellows will be encouraged to
explore a manuscript book of 80 compositions (some unpublished) in
conjunction with printed materials held at both the Library Company and at
the Kislak Center at the University of Pennsylvania. Each Francis Johnson
Fellow will receive a stipend of $5000; $2500 research fund to be defined
by the fellow and program director; travel expenses (up to $500); and
lodging at the Library Company's Cassatt House residence for four to eight
weeks.

To apply, email a proposal (no more than 1000 words) plus a preliminary
budget and timeline, resume or c.v., and one letter of reference to wfenton
-at- librarycompany.org. For more information, visit the Francis Johnson
Fellowship webpage (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__librarycompany.org_francis-2Djohnson-2Dfellowships&d=DwIFaQ&c=Cu5g146wZdoqVuKpTNsYHeFX_rg6kWhlkLF8Eft-wwo&r=PHu0YcldevQqIedM86l0iexbqE-AeZLl-lupNToNx6I&m=7xZLAiSrf0Loa3jDEFJV8XPB58b9x9WP3Y40mloLEOA&s=hQstjxBjpY0Q-nunjxnxWs9Uqfga7S-ibBisU0gZBP0&e= )
